- 1 box vanilla instant pudding (makes 3 treats)
- 2 cups cold milk (per box of pudding)
- mixing bowl
- wire whisk
- disposable clear punch cups
- black permanent marker
- snack size candy bars (to act as the pumpkin's stem)
- red food coloring
Make and Tint Pudding
For every 3 treats, mix two cups of cold milk with one box of vanilla instant pudding and whisk together for 2 minutes (Image 1). To turn the pudding orange, add 5 drops of red food coloring and mix well (Image 2). Tip: If making multiple batches at once, increase the amount of food coloring accordingly (5 drops/box of pudding). Let pudding stand for an additional 5 minutes to firm.
Add Jack-'O-Lantern Faces and Fill Cups
Use a black permanent marker to draw a sinister, sad or happy jack-o'-lantern face onto the front of each punch cup (Image 1). Carefully scoop pudding into cups and insert a snack size candy bar into the center of each to act as a stem (Image 2).
